the location's a secret i'm afraid, but if you stick around you'll probably find out. suffice it to say, nowhere near the continental US.
and i really wish that i could watch season 2 of lost. i just got done with season 1 on dvd.
You can download the episodes from Season 2 the day after they've aired from iTunes. The picture quality isn't DVD, but it's not too expensive.

I dunno, foreign language thing sounds good to me. The law is kind of like a foreign language, I've heard, and I had a really tiny Latin class where the professor took us out to dinner all the time. If you had a prof in a small class, you should ask them to talk about it and how well they got to know you-sounds better than Professor Nobel having you for a few 500 person lectures and commenting about your grade.

I guess I shouldn't mention that we live on the beach, or show you pics...

People come to class in bikinis here all the time...

Let's hope you're right, Mr. Higher than is possible at most of my education GPA.

I wish, but with those stats, were you really worried anyway?

As I elaborated, there were other kids there, and we had a social environment and lounge-but then again, they were all weird to some extent. I was by far one of the most normal, in the group that "could've stayed in HS."
Many were either forced there by their parents and did nothing but study for biochem all day so they could be a doctor at the age of 16, or they were completely socially inept due to bizarre brain chemistry. Regardless, the more "normal" of us had plenty of time to socialize, especially since the college schedule is so much lighter than HS.

I see HS a lot as making friends, too. I wish I'd gotten the chance to know so many of my friends (My school was 6-12) as they turned into adults and cemented friendships
There were many kids like me, but even then, at 15, I was older than many. I know a 16 year old 2L at UCLA who was in the program.
I'm 19 right now, 20 in a couple months. I'll be 21 when I graduate and go on to law school, so old enough to at least fit in the older crowd generally.

Actually, it was really bad. I wouldn't do it again. I would've toughed it out through high school and been a normal kid, and probably gone somewhere better, not that that really matters.
At least, I should've/could've done it a smarter way. I dunno, I'm sticking around undergrad for a total of 6 years because I don't want to so young that everyone thinks I'm a freak. This is important when meeting the ladies, unless I meet the one in the next couple years here. Who knows?

The ever mysterious Groundhog eh...well, I've been lurking for about a year but finally registered in August, and finally started to actually posting hardcore a couple days ago. I expect the posts from me to trickle off after I get my LSAT score, until summer and I work up my apps-I'm not applying til next year.
Born and raised in South Central LA-only white kid ever, almost everywhere. It's part of my PS, or at least Y250.
Dropped out of super preppy and annoying HS before 9th grade was over and went to college early to bad one, transferred to UCSB 'cause I was lazy and didn't want to apply anywhere else.
Uh...I dunno, that's about it.
